    I would just like to add another tip to this recipe.........USE MINI MARSHMALLOWS FOR THE TAILS!! My great grandmother used to make these  -  06 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My daughter made these for her guests at her 10th birthday party. They held their shape, didn't puff, tasted delicious! Easy enough for a 9 year old to do totally by herself. We will make these again. the bunnies were so cute!  -  19 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good! The orange taste is different. I used orange juice concentrate instead of orange juice, and reduced the zest to 2 teaspoons and they turned out fine. I was afraid the dough would have to be refrigerated, but it was easy to handle straight out of the mixing bowl.  -  16 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
